    I guess that answers what they'll be sent tuned from the factory as.

    But if you break your high string, how will you know what gauge string to get?

    as silly as it is, i kinda want one...

    i'd get a really clear and hardassed pickup in it.

    i'd get a 30" scale one though, i don't like the scale length on that for such a low tuning.

    emh.. 700 bucks? I can build a custom of same quality for that money. well, that includes a pup handwound by me, else (woods, hardware etc.) should fit. I mean for that damage speaking of me Ill have to make it myself. Else the guitars gonna be 800+ if you buy Oni, etc. Guitar doesnt even feature a stain, top, inlays - none of costy handwork stuff .. dunno.

    Um, $700 for the only production 9-string guitar is a bargain. Maybe for builders that's not a bargain, but this is a production guitar. We all know it didn't cost $700 to make. :lol:

    naw, i'd definitely tune it to C# or drop B. i'd have to get a fanned fret one if i were going higher instead of lower.

    seconded! if you want to build yourself one, then go ahead. none of the things you listed are prestigious features either, and are often even used to make up for lacks in other departments. so yeah. i'd rather take an oni any day.

    but i'd say put your money where your mouth is. make one that is AT LEAST of the same quality, and that has great playability and design. do it without blowing that budget. THEN we can discuss it ;)

    Sometimes I think so :lol: send me 700$ and Ill have 928 style guitar in 2 monthes :lol:

    Gentlemen, I dont wanna to sound unpleasant.. but.. the 928 doesnt feature ANY timeconsuming features. IMHO for a guitar of that quality its even 2 much. The only things which fundamentally differ it from any production 6 are bridge, number of tuners and a pup which still is noname, and if it sounds the same way as 8string one does IMO its a crap.You know, here in Ukraine we still ride on bears in cold winter days, so I waited to play an 8string agile for a long time, and was pissed off when I did.
    Still Im VERY happy theres a stock 9string!

    Wow! I didn't expect to see this so soon!

    Weird tuning, though...EADEADGBE? If I was getting one, I know the first thing I would do is get a proper low B on the thing. Maybe add a higher string or two...scale might be a bit long for a high A, but I think one of Garry Goodman's strings would hold up on it.

    dis89, if you can build these cheaper, you should have beat Rondo to the punch when you had the chance. This price is insane for something that no one else is manufacturing, don't you agree?

    A 9 string Oni is about $5000. Are you really saying people should just get an Oni if theyre going to spend $700 on this?
